Map of the Universe from Johns Hopkins University and others.....

Johns Hopkins University (JHU) continues to pad its space community résumé with their interactive map, “The map of the observable Universe”, that takes viewers on a 13.7-billion-year-old tour of the cosmos from the present to the moments after the Big Bang. While JHU is responsible for creating the site, additional contributions were made by NASA, the European Space Agency, the National Science Foundation, and the Sloan Foundation.

Neutron Stars, Pulsars, and Magnetars

Neutron Stars, Pulsars, and Magnetars are the most extreme objects in the Universe that aren't Black Holes. Their extreme densities make neutron stars the densest solid bodies in the Universe ultra-powerful magnetic fields. When these fields sweep along our line of sight, we see them as Pulsars. Some Pulsars have have extremely strong magnetic fields. We call these objects Magnetars. And when a Magnetar has a star quake, the most violent explosions this side of a Supernova take place. 🔔 Subscribe for more: : 🖖 Share this video with a fellow space traveler 🔴 Watch my most recent upload: 🚀 Help me improve the channel by joining the community on Patreon 🚀 Check out Launch Pad merchandise!

MAGNETARS!


A Magnetar on the way to be born

A Magnetar is Born Some 160,000 light-years away in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC), a companion galaxy of our own Milky Way, a delicate nebula harbors a rare star with a very magnetic personality. Known as N 49, this nebula is a remnant of a massive star that died thousands of years ago. This filamentary material will eventually be recycled into building new generations of stars in the LMC, much as our own Sun and planets are composed of debris of supernovae that exploded in the Milky Way billions of years ago. At the heart of N 49 is a massive spinning neutron star (also called a pulsar) , a common result of a supernova explosion. But N 49 also has a magnetic field a thousand trillion times stronger than Earth’s magnetic field, placing the star into an exclusive class of objects called magnetars.

This X-ray image shows extended emission around a source known as Swift J1834.9-0846,
a rare ultra-magnetic neutron star called a magnetar. The glow arises from a cloud of fast-moving particles produced
by the neutron star and corralled around it. Colour indicates X-ray energies, with 2,000-3,000 electron volts (eV) in red,
3,000-4,500 eV in green, and 5,000 to 10,000 eV in blue.
The image combines observations by the European Space Agency’s XMM-Newton spacecraft taken on 16 March and 16 October 2014.

A brand new magnetar found, it’s only 240 years old

Magnetars are some of the most ridiculous objects in the universe. Composed of the densest material possible spinning faster than your kitchen blender, they generate the absolute most powerful magnetic fields the cosmos has ever seen – and astronomers have recently spotted a newborn.

Only 31 Magnetars Have Ever Been Discovered. This one is Extra Strange. It’s Also a Pulsar

Some of the most stunningly powerful objects in the sky aren’t necessarily the prettiest to look at. But their secrets can allow humanity to glimpse some of the more intricate details of the universe that are exposed in their extreme environs. Any time we find one of these unique objects it’s a cause for celebration, and recently astronomers have found an extremely unique object that is both a magnetar and a pulsar, making it one of only 5 ever found.

Astronomy Jargon 101: Magnetars

In this series we are exploring the weird and wonderful world of astronomy jargon! Hang on to your magnetic hats, because today’s topic is magnetars! Let’s start with neutron stars. These are the remnant cores of giant stars, made almost entirely of pure neutrons. But there are also some electrons and protons swimming around, and they’ll be important in a second. Neutron stars are already incredibly weird: they have several times the mass of the sun crammed into a volume about the size of Manhattan. That’s a lot of density. You would be perfectly entitled to call neutron stars the largest atomic nuclei in the universe.

A magnetar has been discovered throwing off bizarre blasts of radiation. Is this where fast radio bursts come from?

Magnetars are the ultimate aggressive star: intense magnetic fields, massive outbursts, the works. We’ve known that magnetars are capable of producing some of the most powerful blasts in the cosmos, but new observations reveal a different kind of radiation: radio waves. This could potentially solve the long-standing puzzle of the origins of the mysterious Fast Radio Bursts.

Recently, the ESA’s Integral satellite captured such a high-energy flare from SGR 1935+2154, a magnetar hanging out in our own Milky Way galaxy. Immediately after the flash, Integral sent out a worldwide alert, telling other observatories where to look, in case they found something interesting too.

One teaspoon of the stuff they are made out of would weigh almost one billion tons, and they have magnetic fields that are hundreds of millions of times more powerful than any magnetic that exists today on Earth. But we don’t know much about how they form. A new paper points to one possible source – mergers of neutron stars.

Explosive Magnetar

The rapidly rotating corpse of a long-dead star about 30,000 light years from Earth changed speeds. In a cosmic instant, its spinning slowed. Researchers showed the sudden slowdown could have been caused by a volcano-like rupture on the surface of the star that spewed a “wind” of massive particles into space. The research identified how such a wind could alter the star’s magnetic fields, seeding conditions that would be likely to switch on the radio emissions. #space #shorts #universe #galaxy #neutronstars #neutron #science #scienceandtechnology #sciencefacts #spacefacts #astronomy #astrophysics #astrophysicist

NASA Missions Team Up to Study Unique Magnetar Outburst

On April 28, a supermagnetized stellar remnant known as a magnetar blasted out a simultaneous mix of X-ray and radio signals never observed before. The flare-up included the first fast radio burst (FRB) ever seen from within our Milky Way galaxy and shows that magnetars can produce these mysterious and powerful radio blasts previously only seen in other galaxies. A magnetar is a type of isolated neutron star, the crushed, city-size remains of a star many times more massive than our Sun. What makes a magnetar so special is its intense magnetic field. The field can be 10 trillion times stronger than a refrigerator magnet's and up to a thousand times stronger than a typical neutron star's. This represents an enormous storehouse of energy that astronomers suspect powers magnetar outbursts. The X-ray portion of the synchronous bursts was detected by several satellites, including NASA's Wind mission. The radio component was discovered by the Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment (CHIME), a radio telescope located at Dominion Radio Astrophysical Observatory in British Columbia and led by several Canadian universities. It was also detected by the NASA-funded Survey for Transient Astronomical Radio Emission 2 (STARE2), a trio of detectors in California and Utah operated by Caltech and NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California. The STARE2 data showed that the burst's energy was comparable to FRBs. By the time these bursts occurred, astronomers had already been monitoring their source, a magnetar named SGR 1935+2154, for more than half a day using NASA's Neil Gehrels Swift Observatory, Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope, and the NICER X-ray telescope mounted atop the International Space Station. About 13 hours later, when the magnetar was out of view for Swift, Fermi and NICER, a special X-ray burst erupted. The blast was seen by the European Space Agency’s INTEGRAL mission, the China National Space Administration’s Huiyan X-ray satellite, and the Russian Konus instrument on Wind. As the half-second-long X-ray burst flared, CHIME and STARE2 detected the radio burst, which lasted only a thousandth of a second. Taken together, the observations strongly suggest that the magnetar produced the Milky Way galaxy's equivalent of an FRB, which means magnetars in other galaxies likely produce at least some of these signals.

Magnetars: Neutron Stars but Scarier!

There are many extreme objects in the universe we live in, but today I’m going to look at a dead star that would literally rip you apart. Welcome to the strange and deadly world of magnetars, neutron stars but scarier. Let’s find out more. Magnetars are neutron stars which have immense magnetic fields. These are similar to other neutron stars but there are some significant differences that we’ll have a look at today. Music
